The NFL gave Jonathan Vilma a sworn affidavit from former Saints defensive coordinator Gregg Williams stating that the linebacker offered $10,000 to any teammate who managed to knock Brett Favre out of the 2010 NFC title game.
Vilma met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell for several hours on Monday and afterward sounded uncertain about the future of his season. Vilma is one of four players who had their suspensions tossed out by an appeals board. The other players -- Anthony Hargrove, Will Smith and Scott Fujita -- are scheduled to meet with Goodell on Tuesday, and from there Goodell will decide whether or not to modify his original punishments.
Vilma was originally suspended for the entire 2012 season. Hargrove was suspended for eight games, Smith for four and Fujita for three.
